website for example like VK - https://vk.com i can't never sign in/log in.. it keeps telling me The page isn’t redirecting properly An error occurred during a connection to login.vk.ru.

   This problem can sometimes be caused by disabling or refusing to accept cookies.

i tried to - delete cookies - delete history - add exception (vk.ru/vk.com) to Cookies and Site Data - private Mode - disable HTTPS-Only Mode - reinstall firefox but still like some other website the same problem.... plz help these websites work fine -- by using other Browsers i can login

Hi, I am web developer. App I am working on need to connect to remote host by webscoket and send auth cookies to it (aws guard). The problem is when I run app on the local host (dev mode), it works fine in every Chrome based browser, and even Safari, but unable to connect in FF.

For example, my app runs on localhost:8080, and Websocket host is ws.dev.myapp.com For successeful coonection, handshake request should include cookies from .dev.myapp.com domain, or even .myapp.com. So, you can see on screenshots, cookies not included on request from localhost, and we get 403 error instead of 101 on second pic.

I guest this is some secutiry setting I can tweak, but I can't see what exactly. Or can it be a bug?

Hi, I use Firefox, with google.co.uk as my search engine. I have had a problem for several months now, whereby I cannot access images/shopping pages on Google. e.g. I enter a search criteria in Google - say, TOP GUN. I then click on "Images" option, and the "Before you proceed" page opens, ref cookies. I click on "Accept all", but the images page does not open. The same thing happens for "shopping".

I installed Google Chrome, seperately, and it works fine with that, just not with google.co.uk via Firefox. I have uBlockOrigin installed. I disabled it, but still doesnt work (although I just realised I didnt restart pc after disabling it, perhaps I should have?)

Other addons/Extensions are Dark reader, Dark theme for Google, Dark theme for YouTube, and New Tab override (plus uBlockOrigin, as already mentioned). I cleared my cache etc via Security/Privacy on Firefox settings. I used to be able to access these pages, however for past couple of months, no luck.

Any suggestions/assistance would be appreciated.

I notice some problems with firefox since the latest update:

1. Right after the update I enabled the settings to empty the cookies each time FF is closed down ("Delete cookies and site data when Firefox is closed"). But, I ended not liking this feature since it constantly demanded me to remember my passcodes and became a headache, so I disabled it. But FF still continues deleting cookies each time, and seem to be stuck on deleting cookies.

I've been given various suggestions to go to resolve this, like reinstall, config, etc., uninstall apps, but nothing helps.

2. Another issue I have is FF with Facebook. Using Facebook in FF I can't backspace and I can't post any comment. If I try to post comments it simply moves the cursor down on the page but you can't post anything.

None of these issues continue in other browsers so it must be FF related.

3. FF seem to use enormous amount of memory and power usage, especially when multiple tabs are open (or even if tabs are not open it shows previous tabs in the Task Manager). I'm not a programmer or coder but a friend of mine who was a senior programmer in the banking industry told me it's possible for coders to solve this issue. If I understood him right (and I apologize if my wording is wrong), a solution would be to keep tabs in sleep state if they are open but not active on top so they don't keep running or updating data all the time. This of course would need consideration that sometimes people want to listen to videos or audio while using other tabs - but that would involve every single tab and can perhaps be provided as an option.

Many people like to keep multiple tabs open, yet still have good browsing performance. Maybe there can be a new project to offer better tab management to make them easily visible and accessible? Bookmarks are not that great because they disapper into a long stream of text without clarity what exactly they are until you open the page, and even then scrolling down and using bookmarks is not that great if you have many saved......

Oh, good grief! How many times do I have to enter this information?! 1. I want to manage blocked cookies via a "blacklist", rather than a whitelist. Also, I want to select cookies to block from a current list, instead of having to memorize them and type them in manually. 2. I have "strict" tracking protection enabled, yet I get permanent cookies installed from websites I do not visit or interact with. For instance, if I open a new site web page, and that page has a Youtube video, even though it doesn't play (because I have autoplay blocked), yet the page adds a permanent Youtube cookie to my computer, that gets updated (and often multiplies), whenever I start my browser. Please provide a means to prevent this!

Hi everyone,

I unfortunately have somewhat unstable power where I live which is causing me some issues with Firefox. I plan on purchasing a UPS at some point, but just haven't messed with it right now. When there is a power outage and I have Firefox open, I always get logged out of all websites. Sometimes I get the message about Firefox already running and I delete the parent.lock file to fix that, but I still have to log back into every single website again (whether or not I have to delete parent.lock).

I've went over all settings (such as auto deleting cookies, etc) and nothing looks like it would cause this issue. It's almost like the cookies are "expiring" after a power outage and are no longer any good. Any ideas?

Thanks!

I have twice come across a glitch on the Firefox version of tumblr. The notifications will remain entirely static, regardless of how many items are in my dash or how many people have interacted with my posts. I am sure this is a Firefox issue as logging onto Google Chrome removes this issue entirely. I have temporarily removed cookies and passwords for tumblr, but the issue has not improved.

Dear Firefox,

Thanks for reading this.

I use your superb browser to surf the web. One of the only sites I am having trouble with is Transport for London, www.tfl.gov.uk.

The thing about this site is, that when I go onto it, it simply freezes almost straight away. I use my wired mouse to try to scroll up or scroll down the site, and I cannot. It is just stuck. There are no scroll bars on the right to be able to click on to go up or down.

I am thinking this problem may have something to do with cookies. I say this, because the site is allright before the message comes onto the screen asking you to agree to cookies.

Is this a possiblity, do you think?

Or is there another possibility? For example, I have visited another forum, and told to increase hardware acceleration. Could this be the answer?

Any suggestions would be more than welcome, Yours Marek

The past couple weeks I've had this issue 2-3 times now where after I start up my computer and launch Firefox, and I find am logged out of every last website I was logged into. However, it is not every time I launch, and seems to only happen the first launch of a Windows session.

I've never had this issue before. The only notable changes that have happened to my computer in the past several weeks are:

1) I now have a second Windows user account on my PC for work (I suspect this to be honest, but not sure why it would be like that)

2) I think Windows 10 did a random feature update against my will a month ago?

3) I installed Escape From Tarkov

I have uBlock Origin, NoScript, Ghostery, and HTTPS Everywhere. Nothing else besides those add-ons.

Aside from that, I went through Firefox log-in/session settings and everything is correct.

I even have cookie exceptions set to "Allow" for all of those sites (both HTTP and HTTPS URLs), so there is zero reason that this should be happening.

Its also worth noting that this is not every time I launch Firefox. It is seemingly random but happens upon my first launch of Firefox that Windows start up. POSSIBLY after I hit "Restart" on Windows instead of "Shutdown", but I haven't been able to test this theory yet.

Any help would be appreciated, thanks!
